“I’m doing the best I can”

But what kind of grace are you giving the others?

It’s easy to see our flaws and imperfections because we truly know what kind of effort we are bringing to the table.

Yet, we can only guess what everyone else is bringing. And if someone’s doing less then we often assume they must be bringing less effort.

Give the A to those around you. If not, you are giving them less than what they probably deserve and won’t hear what they have to say.

We all are rational actors. Not because we see things objectively, but we keep talking ourselves into any narrative we create.
